How to cook Ginataang Gulay at Hipon
Ginataang Gulay at Hipon is made of squash, shrimps and green beans that simmer in coconut milk to create a nutritious and delicious meal. The word “Ginataang” (also spelled “ginataan” or “guinataan”) is a Filipino term referring to food cooked with “gata,” the Tagalog word for coconut milk.
Ginataang Gulay has many different versions, this one is my favorite because of the shrimps. Another version of this dish have pork, dilis or long-jawed anchovy and some put crabs on it.
